One step closer? Its a giant leap! From 55hp to 350hp... 7x power upgrade!

My understanding is that Nick's kit is designed to only work with the LT230. Advance Adapters makes an adapter that would probably work between the 6 speed auto and the Series tbox. Call Advance and ask for Matt Jackson

Was watching the video's of the Icon 90 & 110, both appear to be using the 2010 Camero / LS3 exhaust manifolds on the E-rod engines.... have they been tried ?

Look to be a snug fit but there cheapish on Ebay

Looks like they did the same on the 110 even though as it uses the LT230... custom mount bolted to the trans adaptor

Great idea to put that heat deflecting fabric around the engine mount rubber... I should consider that the next time I change them.

OE. Looks like they moved the engine/drivetrain back quite a bit and more to the center. Exactly what avoided.

I noticed that too and was wondering why. I did it for my Toy HP front axle build but mainly for the reason if I ever sold them I could market to RHD guys as well :D
